When a runtime error is encountered in a solution, it displays an error and its position.  However, there is no means to navigate to the location of the error.  The user must manually open the file and location the position of the source of the error.  It should allow a double-click, a link, something that would open the file and place the cursor on the location of the error.  I mean, it knows the position so it should be able to navigate there.
